Are You A Christ-Centered Relief Or Development Organization? Join The Accord Network.
Is Accord Right For Me?
We’re so glad you asked
Accord welcomes Christ-centered relief and development organizations who understand the gravity of their mission but know the weight is not theirs alone to bear.
Together we endeavor to serve the global poor with excellence, affirming the value of community and embracing opportunities to learn from, share with, and encourage fellow practitioners, for the benefit of those we serve.
Members Benefits Include
Relationships + Resources + Representation
We relate with each other
Held twice annually, retreats offer a unique opportunity for organizational leaders to bring their specific challenges before a confidential peer group for advice, mentoring, and prayer. For the Colorado retreat, Accord member CEOs’ registration fee is waived.
Hear from compelling plenary speakers, meet your peers, share your best practices, and learn from theirs at Accord’s annual conference. The registration fee is waived for CEOs of both member and associate member organizations.
Alliances / COPs
We are stronger when we work together, learning from and growing with our peers. Accord offers strategic alliances in WASH, Gifts-In-Kind, and Research, with the flexibility to begin additional alliances in areas you deem critical. Join strategic, sector-based alliances that communicate regularly to propel their members to best-in-class service.
Central Desk Access
Reach out to our team any time you have specific needs or questions to be connected to a fellow network member who has faced the same issue. In the spirit of collaboration, we invite you to share your own challenges and successes with your fellow Accord members.

We speak with a united voice
Charitable Tax Deduction
The deductibility of donations allows us to do more good around the world. We will work to preserve and expand the charitable deduction so that more taxpayers can receive this benefit when giving to your organization.
Religious Freedom/Religious Hiring
We believe that faith-based organizations should continue to have the freedom to hire based on faith. We will work together to preserve this right.
Poverty-Focused Development Assistance
When fighting global poverty, it’s all hands on deck. The U.S. Government’s efforts compliment our own. Accord members are often the implementing partners for their work. We’ll work to keep the federal budget for this assistance strong.
